A fat girl’s quest to freedom

Reminisces, Regrets and Renewal

I reached my the end of my first six weeks on August 23, which was my birthday, and my results astounded me. I had lost 22 lbs and 28 inches all over my body and I couldn’t wait for the next six weeks! Great results! I felt so good about myself! Now….I have to admit that since then I haven’t been as diligent in my eating and excersing as I should have been. I regret to say that I kind of relaxed after I learned of my results. But today is the beginning of a new week and my determination has been renewed! I felt guilty and disappointed in my self because I had not been eating as good as I could have been. I decided to get out of the house and went to Sutro Heights Park near the beach in San Francisco. I had planned to take a few pictures and admire the view. However I found myself hiking the trails and pushing my body to do something that I have never done. It was hard and there were a few times when I thought that I wasn’t going to make it. But I pushed a little harder and I finally made it to the top! I was exhilarated and so proud of myself. It made me realize how far I had come in those short six weeks. I would be out of breath from walking from my house to the grocery store across the street. I wouldn’t walk fast and it was all on flat ground! I couldn’t believe that six weeks of eating healthy and getting daily exercise could make such a difference. I still have a long way to go but I know that at the end of these six weeks I will be that much closer to being healthy, fit and closer to being free of the fat girl. I will post pictures from my hike a little later. :-)

  1. Thanks! I carry around tons of motivation with me at all times (old pictures of myself, a killer vanilla leather skirt with matching boots in my goal size) but there is nothing more motivational for me than realizing how far I’ve come when it comes to being physically active.

  2. You are doing awesome! What a fantastic feeling to hike like that. 22lbs & 28 inches in 6 weeks??? You are rockin’ it! Here’s to the next 6!
